jogging stroller or going to the park while i swim. i'm proud of you, scott. you look great. i can't wait to cross the finish line with you. thanks so much. >> yeah, looking forward to it. >> if you want to follow along with me, scott, or any members of the six-pack, check out cnn.com clash sanjay. get a lot more there on our fit nation challenge. thanks for being with us today. i'm dr. sanjay gupta. more news on cnn starts right more news on cnn starts right now. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com good saturday morning. you are looking live at one of the busiest highways in the country but it's eerily empty this weekend. you don't see cars. you see construction vehicles. yes, it's closed for construction and expected to cause a traffic nightmare so bad, that they're actually calling this karcakarmcarmagedd. also, listen to this. ipad 2 for $69. sears was offering that deal
5:01am
yesterday. today, they're offering an apology. the big mistaking that had people thinking they had gotten the bargain of the year. but first, here are your options. resign or be fired. that is the ultimatum that was just given to nearly 200 educators tied to one of the largest school cheating scandals in u.s. history. it was just over a week ago, a state investigation revealed 178 teachers, including 38 principals, woulding at 44 schools cheated for students on standardized tests in atlanta. on monday, interim superintendent erroll davis replaced four superintendents and one principal in the atlanta public school scandal. now a letter has been sent to the 178 teachers, principals and administrators who were on the state investigative report as either confessing to or being implicated in the cheating. davis has ordered that educators resign by next wednesday or they will face termination. he says the culture inside the
5:02am
school district has to change. >> people failed children, they cheated. and we can't allow that to happen and we can't allow anyone who was involved with that to remain in our system. >> now, staff replacement may be the first step taken by the atlanta public school system to overcome an image now marred by scandal. but the culture of fear and imtimdation which davis says may have pushed educators to take such drastic measures it must also change. we talked to keith brummer, director of media relations for the atlanta school district how that would happen. >> he's also establishing mandatory annual ethics training for all employees that you have to go through that will likely be an electronic course of which there's an assessment or test at the end just to reinforce the fact that he has has said often that yes, i expect my employees and i will set targets for them to achieve but the repercussions will be a lot worse for people
5:03am
who fail to adhere to ethical standards than to beat targets. >> now, the district's new focus on tone, culture and performance also includes a commitment to parents and students, especially those indirectly involved in the cheating scandal. >> the other thing we're doing is trying to identify those students who may have been adversely affected academically by this situation, and we're doing that with the results of the last two administrations and the state tests which were done under much more stringent and tight testing environment situations. so that anybody who's come through that who is still deficient would be be noted in the testing and the testing was pretty tight. and we're putting together an academic program for those students. >> now, the teachers and principals named in the investigation could also face criminal charges. the district attorney been determine the nature and extent of any charges filed. we're just past the top of the hour here. it will be tomorrow that casey
5:04am
anthony will be a free woman. as you know, she was found not guilty of murdering her daughter caylee. authorities being pretty tight-lipped about how this whole release will go down. cnn's david mattingly is there in orlando. david, tell us what do we know? and part of that is we may not know till after the fact that she's released. >> reporter: that's right, tj. we do know that we're going to see a young woman who's been incarcerated for about the last three years who was exonerated of charges of murder, becoming a free woman and facing all the scrutiny and ill will that is out there there facing her. but as far as the way she's going to leave this jail, where, when, and how exactly has not been released for security reasons. we do know that there have been three journalists allowed to embed inside the jail to observe her departure, but they won't say when, where, or how that is actually going to happen. there's about a half a dozen
5:05am
exits from the sprawling facility behind me here. and these judicialists wi ijour be allowed to communicate with anyone on the outside till after she has left and after it's been determined that she has left, a point where it will be safe for her to continue on because authorities here have made it clear that their responsibility for her safety only extends as far as the property of this jail complex here behind me. once she's away from the jail, she is on her own like any other private citizen, and she will not be getting any special protection from police unless there is a specific threat that they have to investigate against her. >> david, what is the extent of the threats that have been made on casey anthony so far? >> reporter: well, we do know that yesterday in court, one of her civil attorneys did say that he had received seven threats just that day against casey
5:06am
anthony. he didn't describe the fair of those threats, how credible they might be. but it is an indication of the ongoing ill will that is facing her as she gets out of jail tomorrow. and that there has been a security concern all along. her defense attorneys have said they are worried about her safety. so at this point, once she leaves here, she will be going off to parts unknown, presumably to stay as much out of the public eye as possible. trying to stay out of the public eye but she might end up back in a courtroom. it seems there are a few legal cases, lawsuits popping up against her. >> reporter: that's right. she's got all sorts ofively cases brewing right now, not the least of which is a defamation suit by a woman who shares the same name as the fictitious nanny that casey anthony made up who said this fictitious nanny, zanny the nanny was taking care of her little daughter caylee.
5:07am
the woman who shares that name, zenaida gonzales is seeking a defamation suit against her. they wanted to depots casey anthony for this case before she left jail because her attorneys were saying they were worried that she might leave the state and they'll never get a chance to pursue this case. well, the judge says that they will have a hearing on this now set for sometime in october here in florida. so casey anthony will be leaving while that suit remains unsettled. >> all right, david mattingly for us. we'll be checking in with you again. david, we appreciate you. one other legal issue possibly for casey anthony. listen to this. an inmate in south carolina is now requesting a paternity test to determine if he is the father of deceased caylee anthony. in papers filed with the orange county, florida court clerk, chris umberger requested anthony be served before she's released from jail tomorrow. it is not known at this time if
5:08am
umberger and anthony have had any previous relationship. urn turning to washington, d.c. and the debate over raising the debt ceiling. we don't have debate talks schedule for this weekend after we saw a round of talks throughout this week. the u.s. actually hit its debt limit back in may, but the deadline is august 2nd. that's the deadline for raising the limit. that is when the government says they won't be able to do any more funny math and move things around and just won't be able to pay all of the bills. now, the stumbling block between the two sides has been taxes. republicans say spending cuts is the way to go. democrats say you have to tax some of the wealthier folks in the country. the president, we heard from him this morning in his white house address. take a listen. >> i'm willing to compromise. i'm willing to do what it takes to solve this problem even if it's not politically popular. and i expect leaders in congress to show that same willingness to compromise. the truth is, you can't solve
5:09am
our deficit without cutting spending. but you also can't solve it without asking the wealthiest americans to pay their fair share. or without taking on loop holes that give special interests and big corporations tax breaks, the middle class americans don't get. >> republicans did have a response this morning. here it was. they had orrin hatch delivering it. he said "we've been down this road before and republicans will not go down it again. in 1990, congress and the president struck a deficit reduction deal that combined spending cuts with tax increases. unfortunately, while the tax hikes remained, the spending restraint did not. and our debt has only marched higher." we're nine minutes past the hour. let us say good morning to our dear reynolds wolf. yes, it's hot but we've got something exceptional going on this weekend. >> absolutely. temperatures, high temperatures going up into the 90s but with the high humidity, it's going to feel like it's beyond the 100 degree mark, anywhere from 110
5:10am
to 120 in many spots. we'll show you who's going to get what. that's moments away, tj. >> we'll see you again here shortly. the 405 freeway in los angeles, shutdown this weekend. what an eerie sight that is. look at that, anytime day or night, you're talking about traffic in los angeles, it never looks like this. we'll tell you how folks in that car depend didn't city are trying to cope with their dear 405 being shut down. that's coming up next. it's ten minutes past the hour. i type in e-n-g... and he gives me a variety of options. would you like to have a look at a map, my lad? ah, why not? shall we check on the status of your knighthood? yes. again? yes, again, please! thank you. with my digital manservant, i'll never be homesick again. would you like me to put the kettle on, sir? no, i'd like you to get rid of that ostrich. it's been here a month. [ male announcer ] think, type, go. with just type. only on the new hp touchpad with webos. [ male announcer ] think, type, go. with just type. somewhere in america,
5:11am
there's a doctor who can peer into the future. there's a nurse who can access in an instant every patient's past. and because the whole hospital's working together, there's a family who can breathe easy, right now. somewhere in america, we've already answered some of the nation's toughest healthcare questions. and the over 60,000 people of siemens are ready to do it again. siemens. answers. all right. 11 minutes past the hour. let's ahead across country to look at stories making headlines. first in san francisco, where a new jersey man plead the not guilty to stealing a picasso sketch worth about $275,000. he allegedly stole it from a gallery last week and facing several charges, including burglary. police believe he robbed other galleries, as well. they found 11 paintings hanging
5:12am
in his apartment. to chicago, where a 26-foot sculpture of marilyn monroe was unveiled yesterday wearing the iconic white dress that was made famous in the movie "the seven year itch." and california's governor has signed a bill requiring public schools to teach students about contributions from lesbian, gay, by sexual, and transgender americans. the bill is believes to be the first of its kinds in the country and also requires teachers to instruct students on how to deal properly with people with disabilities. this bill actually goes into effect in january but it will take until maybe 2015 to fully update all of the textbooks. well, highway 405, the 405, the infamous 405 in los angeles. you never want to be on this thing quite frankly. well, nobody's really on it this weekend. it is always a traffic mess but this weekend, there is no traffic on it because of something they call carmageddon. they had to shut down the
5:13am
infamous 405 this weekend for a construction project. our sandra indoreports for us from l.a. >> reporter: for 53 hours. >> stay home if you can don't drive if you can. >> reporter: a major shutdown. >> this is the one weekend we want to tell you, you really need to avoid the 405. >> reporter: one of the most congested arteries in los angeles, the 405. >> do anything you can to avoid driving through this area. >> reporter: los angeles mayor antonio have i lara goes sa is pushing the use of mass transit but admits to the city's addiction. >> we are the car capital of the united states united states of america and the single car passenger capital. >> why are the warnings so dire? >> well, you heard the hype about carmageddon. the people don't heed the call to plan ahead, stay at home, get out of their car, there is going to be gridlock like we haven't seen. maybe the mother of all gridlocks. >> reporter: the shutdown is part of a billion dollar project
5:14am
to expand the 405 by adding an hov lane over a teb-mile stretch. engineers are demolishing this bridge to make it happen. transportation critics say expanding freeways won't solve l.a.'s traffic nightmares. >> people in los angeles are much less likely to use our public transportation system system. >> why is that. >> it's much less expensive in los angeles to own a car. no amount of public transportation and no amount of freeway building is going to get rid of traffic congestion because there's just too many people and as long as the roads are unpriced, you're going to having congestion. >> what do you say to critic who say look, l.a. is always going to be congested. people aren't going to take mass transit unless you do something about discouraging people from driving. how about tolls? how about make it more exexpensive to drive. >> actually, they're absolutely right. >> reporter: there is free bus and train service during the
5:15am
shutdown for affected areas. and despite the pending doom, after three months of warning the public, a good dose of optimism from the mayor. >> i fully believe it's going to be a successful effort. >> reporter: sandra endo, cnn, los angeles. >> we're about 14 minutes past the hour now. yes, we know it's summer. we know it gets hot but it's dangerously hot in some places. you see those highs, 97, 97, 95, 94? that's minneapolis. but the heat index is going to be around 110. that ain't good in some parts of the country. reynolds has all that for us this morning. we'll talk to him in just a second. also, have you seen the harry potter movie, the final one? if you haven't, you're one of the few it seems. deathly hallows part 2 just opened and yes, it's already broken records. >> shame on you! shame on you! >> and that is the reaction to rupert murdoch right now in

5:18am
talking about the heat wave. the reason we refer to a heat wave is because it's not just something that happens very quickly, it's a wave of very warm air that sticks around a region for quite awhile. >> the region we're talking about this time is not the one we're used to talking about with these heat waves, is it. >> no, if we were talking about this in texas, people would say, it's texas, upper midwest, it's not supposed to happen. we're going to part of the central plains and thames where we have had heat. record heat in places like dodge city, kansas. you see in dallas, fort worth, st. angelo and dalhart, very, very warm spots. look what's coming. we're talking about the heat waves namely in spots like minneapolis. take a look. we're expecting highs mainly into the upper 90s, lows not much relief during the nighttime. still in the 70s and 80s. normal would be 83 degrees. high humidity is a big differencemaker and makes things feel much warmer. as we look at this graphic, it's
5:19am
going to feel like 111 degrees. same deal tomorrow, feeling like the century mark in places like kansas city and oklahoma city, even into dallas. as you go from sunday to monday, the heat intensifies. 116 in minneapolis. going back up to 112 as we go into tuesday. we're not going to see much of a break in the action unless you get scattered showers and perhaps some storms. one spot where we're getting the cooldown would be in atlanta where we've had all kinds of incredible heat over the last couple days, but with the clouds that are in this morning and the scattered showers that happening to be pop up as we speak, storms keep us mainly in the 70s and 80s in the southeast. col see storms develop across parts of the dakotas also, especially into the late afternoon hours. a few rumbles this morning. into the northern rockies and pacific northwest, the rain is going to continue. very dry conditions for you in parts of the four corners into southern california, especially out by the 405 which really doesn't matter because you're not going to be driving on it

we are running out of time. the federal government is anyway. if there is no deal on on raising the debt ceiling by august 2nd, we are told that the u.s. government will not be able to pay all of its bills. president obama again tried to put pressure on republicans during a speech yesterday. >> the clear majority of republican voters think that any deficit reduction package should have a balanced approach and should inclue some revenues. that's not just democrats. that's the majority of republicans. >> now, according to administration officials, here's the poll. the president was referring to here. with a total of 67% saying spending cuts are the biggest part, the administration says it shows that republicans would support the president's bigger deal. the president also said 80% of americans support tax increases as part of the solution. now the math on that will, 20%
5:35am
say spending cuts are the only option, so the administration concludes that the rest are on board with the deal that includes both options. another poll though to show you shows a closer republican divide. quinnipiac poll shows that 48% of republicans say that the only thing that should be included in the debt ceiling deal are some of these cuts. forgive us for all of those numbers. i know it's confusing but the president trying to make his point that the american people are on his side. well, on politics this weekend, presidential candidates are out on the campaign trail today. probably talking about debt ceiling. here's where some of them are. jon huntsman is in salt lake city attending the national governor's association annual meeting. michele bachmann campaigning in iowa, making two stops and her cane cain will be in bermingham, alabama tonight giving the keynote address at the reagan/lincoln dinner. a lot of people in this country, all eyes on the world cup final tomorrow. and cheering hard for those

6:02am
been taxes during these debates. republicans say spending cuts, that's the only way to go. democrats say you have actually got to put more of a burden on the wealthier people, have them pay more in taxes. we heard from the president this morning, his white house address. take a listen. >> i'm willing to compromise. i'm willing to do what it takes to solve this problem, even if it's not politically popular. and i expect leaders in congress to show that same willingness to compromise. the truth is, you can't solve our deficit without cutting spending but you also can't solve it without asking the wealthiest americans to pay their fair share or without taking on loopholes that give special interests and big corporations tax breaks the middle class americans don't get. >> now, certainly, a number of the republican presidential candidates are weighing in on the debt ceiling debate. first up, take a listen to tim pawlenty. >> it is a mess but it's got to be fixed. the problem is if they just put a band-aid over a broken bone,
6:03am
that's not going to solve the problem. i really hope they'll use this moment. i wish they wouldn't raise the debt ceiling. they're moving in that direction. they should fix it the problem really and not just kick the can down the road. >> mitt romney for his part saying a line needs to be drawn in the sand at a town hall meeting in new hampshire. he says spending cuts and caps are the key to getting a long-term deal done. also michele bachmann. the only one of these three who is actually in congress right now opposes raising debt ceiling and accuses the president and tim geithner of not telling the truth of what happens if the ceiling is not raised. this phone hacking scandal in the uk, rupert murdoch is issuing a printed apology this morning in several british newspapers. meanwhile,les hinton is out as ceo of dow jones. that's another of murdoch's companies. what does that have to do with the hacking scandal? hinton was in charge of "news of
6:04am
the world" when all of this hacking started. the woman who is the most current chief at news international is also out. her name is rebekah brooks, she resigned as ceo of that company. that's the british part of murdoch's news empire. murdoch had given brooks a vote of confidence shortly after the scandal. now she's out. our jim boulden is live for us in london this morning and jim tell us more about this apology, this very public and printed apology for murdoch. >> yes, we learned last night after we heard thatles hinton and rebekah brooks had resigned that rupe. ert murdoch would start to publish today. we are sorry in a number of newspapers, newspapers he owns and some of the competitors, as well. and he says that we are very sorry for the serious wrongdoing that occurred. that's very strong language for rupert murdoch. i'm not sure though it's going to make much of a difference
6:05am
right now. yesterday when he was meeting with the family of a teenager who was murdered in 2002 and whose phone was allegedly hacked into by news of the world, there were people around him when he was walking in heckle him. let's hear that. >> shame on you. shame on you! shame on you! shame on you! shame on you! >> mr. murdoch, will you tell us what you said to millidowler's family. >> whoa, stop pushing. >> keep sil leapt for a moment. it was a totally private meeting. >> keep your head down, mate. can you tell us exactly what you said? >> no, i'm not. not going to comment. >> that's really the first public statements we've heard from rupert murdoch. that was on friday. might have been hard to hear there, but he was saying it was a private meeting. it the lawyer for milly dowler's
6:06am
family said he was very apologetic. we'll hear more from mr. about your doc, his son james and rebeckah brooks. people say that will be very much of a grilling. >> nothing short of interesting that will be. jim boulden for us, we appreciate you as always. here at six minutes past the hour. to our viewers, we're talking about phone hacking. it sounds like a complicated something, and you might need some technical know-how, but really? can anybody hack your phone right now? i want to bring back in our marriol armstrong. mario, you help me with this, because it sounds like something you would have to be savvy to do this. but can anybody hack my phone right now. >> yeah, that's the biggest misconception. i'm so glad you're focusing on this because anyone can do this. you don't have to have a technology-related degree by any means. that's why a lot of reporters were able to do this in the first place. it's a thing called spoofing. anyone can look this up.
6:07am
essentially if i know your cell phone number, i can have my phone spoof that number, which would trick the voice mail system into thinking my phone is yours. so i don't know if i just confused you, but essentially what i would do with my phone is be able to call into your voice mail and if you don't have a pass code on it, it thinks this is you calling in. >> okay. now, in that case, it's not like the phone calls coming into my phone would go to yours. we're talking specifically about hacking into voice mails. >> that's correct. that's how this whole -- that's one of the ways that this whole scandal started to reveal itself. it's one of the ways where many people are very vulnerable. there are other things, too, downloading apps can also have malicious software so you need to pay attention to what you're doan loading. there are other ways that people can get access to your account or to your phone but starts mostly with the voice mail. >> it sounds like you said in there if you don't have a
6:08am
password protecting your voice mail. >> yes. >> -- is that the key and you can prevent this? >> three quick keys to prevent this. that's number one, t.j. many people do not put a pass code on their voice mail. it's just default wide open. so you need to place a pass code on your voice mail, number one. number two, you need to place a pin code on your actual wireless account. so call your wireless provider and place a. encode. the reason why you do that, is if someone gets your number, they could call into the wireless carrier and put additional services on to your phone where messages could be sent via e-mail. you know, there's voice mail transcription services now so you could have your voice mail transcribed into texts and sent to someone else's e-mail and they get the full voice mail transcription of that and you not even know that's happening. so they can't make changes to your account if you have a pass code placed on the account. and then last but not least, you want to make sure that you are looking out for apps that you
6:09am
are down loding on your device and place a lock code on the actual hardware itself. place a lock code on the physical device. >> i'm going to ask you one last question. it might come off as being selfish because i do have an iphone. a lot of people do. is it good enough to just put a lock on the phone you? have to type in just to get acis esto the phone. you need to do something else to your voice mail actually and put a lock on the voice mail. >> that's right. >> so there is a feature that allows you to do this on these iphones, correct. >> that's right. it's basically -- that's exactly right. the answer is yes. it's not good enough just to place a lock code on the physical device. you need to place a pin code on the voice mail system. >> good stuff. this is a good time to think about the probably something not a lot of people would normally think about. maybe this whole scandal has given us an opportunity to educate ourselves. >> you know, tj, it's big because husbands, wives, spouses people could be in rough relationships or in situations where they don't want their
6:10am
messages, what you assume voice mail to be private. you want that information to remain private. and you know, it's making it easier for people to break into those things. want people to be aware. >> if i locked my wife out of this phone in any way form or fashion, whoo, not happening. >> transparency is the best policy. >> there you go. good stuff this morning. thank you so much for sticking around longer here so we could get this in. thanks so much, mario. >> ten minutes past the hour. it is being called carmageddon, oh, the end of humanity in the los angeles as we know it. the biggest rask nightmare some are saying they will ever see in their lifetimes. a tense weekend for drivers in los angeles but what weekend is it? they're being told to stay home. we will explain. stay with us on the cnn saturday morning".
